A Secret Invasion Sequel in Next Week's Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #38?

Squirrel Girl is not dead, despite the claims made by the cover of last issue, but a more sinister plot may be menacing the Marvel Universe, if this preview of next week's Unbeatable Squirrel-Girl #38 has anything to say about it. Of course, we're talking about the menace of a super-mega-crossover event sequel!

2008's Secret Invasion, by "The Great One" Brian Bendis and Leinil Francis Yu, revealed that Skrulls had been secretly infiltrating Earth's superhero community for years with the end goal of taking over the Earth and inflicting consequences that would shake the Marvel Universe to its foundation, repercussions that would be felt for a long, long time… or at least until the next super-mega-crossover event. But they were slightly less frequent back then. Slightly.

In any case, could that same thing be happening again? It is the tenth anniversary, after all, and just look at this clip from the preview…

Oh no! Who do you trust?!

Also, we learn exactly how much cloud storage Iron Man keeps…

Really? Just 93 terabytes? We'll all be laughing at this ten years from now when we've got 8 petabytes of storage on our smartphone memory cards.

Unbeatable Squirrel-Girl #38 hits stores next Wednesday.

• …is what you'd be saying if you only read the cover of our last issue and NOT the contents, in which we revealed a shocking twist: Squirrel Girl…IS ALIVE?
• Yes! The good news is, everyone's favorite squirrel-themed super hero is alive and well! But the bad news is: Whoever replaced her…was a shape-shifting alien SKRULL, and now Team Doreen doesn't know who to trust!
• Mysteries deepen and allegiances are tested in this issue as…a shocking Skrull is revealed!
• It's not Nancy, though.
• Nancy's great.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
